Developer Bellway has snapped up a second parcel of land at the new St James' Park estate in Bishop's Stortford.

The deal means the housebuilder – which has already acquired a 12.7-acre (5.14ha) site for 219 homes – is set to deliver a further phase of 155 properties.

In all, Bellway will be constructing 374 of the 750 homes planned at Countryside's 131-acre (53ha) Bishop's Stortford South scheme, off Whittington Way.

Work will begin early next year on 131 homes for private sale as well as 88 affordable properties, with a mix of houses and apartments.

Ali Maruf, managing director of Bellway North London, said: "Having purchased a second parcel of land at St James' Park, we are now delivering a significant amount of housing within this consortium, highlighting our commitment to providing much-needed homes in Bishop's Stortford.

"With construction work set to get under way in early 2022, we are planning to launch the first phase of homes in the spring of next year and we can then hopefully start to welcome the first residents to their homes next winter.

"In the meantime, as part of our ongoing commitment to the area, we are also providing new homes at our Goodsyard development in Bishop's Stortford, transforming the former railway goods yard site near the station into an attractive new neighbourhood for the local community."

The wider development at St James' Park will include a new primary school, shops, a care home and employment space, as well as a new home for The Bishop's Stortford High School.
